I would highly recommend checking them out.

Your fast I posted as soon as I saw it.  One of my favorite bands.

Lau - Arc Light.

 

Saw these guys in live gig recently here in Ireland. It was captivating. Hope they play again here soon! My Grado PS1000s do their music justice, but the live performance is a whole other level.

How are you finding that?  I was A B'ing that with the original release a while back.

I don't have the original. This is the 24k gold version disc. It's sounds amazingly good. The second track, Bird on a Wire, is now one of my reference test tracks.

Another new one for me - how have I missed this album all these years?

Superb recording - HD800 demo caliber for sure.

I don't have an extensive list, but I believe Chet Baker – Baker's Holiday was a recent one I found.

I'm sure you can find more through some Googling, and I believe a few over on hydrogenaudio.org has done some work on this.

Thanks for the feedback.

If there is a DVD-A or SACD available the more likely they are Hi REZ.  The newer remastered releases are in general better as well.

I started googling best recorded sacd's a few weeks ago after I scored a free sacd player. Some of the titles were mentioned over and over again.  Famous Blue Raincoat was one. I didn't buy it in sacd but I still think it sounds tremendous. She worked with Leonard Cohen on this I believe.

Nice! Thanks for posting. Any others off your "best of" list you'd care to share?

Several...but you may already have them. Here is what I've bought in the last month. Most of it is reference quality recordings.

 

1. Amber Rubarth: Sessions from the 17th Ward (amazing sense of space and the hand played drums in the acoustic tracks will wow you)

 

2. Beck: Sea Change (very melodic and laid back with a great bass line throughout the album)

 

3.Roxy Music: Avalon (damn what a recording and straight up fun album)

 

4. Diana Krall: When I look in your Eyes (dvd audio and incredibly well mastered)

 

5. DSOTM (sacd, nothing else needs to be said)

 

6. REM: Automatic for the People (nice ambient recording, well recorded and really shows the maturity of a great local band)

 

7. Anne Akiko Meyers: Air the Bach Album (the story is that she spend a cool million on the violin. Well, it was worth it. First time I listened it a little tear in my eye)

 

8. Wallin' Jenny's: Live at the Mauch Opera House ( Not my favorite genre but reference material for sure)

 

9. Doug MacLeod: There's a Time (this is one of the best blues albums that I've ever had the pleasure to experience. The texture of the bass guitar in "Black Nights" track 2 will make you wet your pants if you have the right gear...no joke.)

 

How's that?
